Who am I?

I'm a Software Engineer from Scotland, currently working at FindMyPast. I graduated in Computer Science from the University of Dundee in 2019.

When I'm not working I am drinking coffee or thinking about coffee. I enjoy experiencing the world through different people by reading. I also fulfil the cliche of being a Software Engineer by a lot of time working on side projects and following the industry (mostly on twitter).

I blog (sporadically) about things I find interesting, or to show off a something I've made.

When at work I am making the parts of the platform more stable for customers to use and making feature team engineers faster. I work across the whole stack so I work with React, NodeJS, K8s, Postgres, Golang and when I can't avoid it C#.
